Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

From the author who brought us the best-selling The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbookand its several spin-offs comes this goof of a psychology book. Piven pits two equally bad options, people, situations, or activities against each other-e.g., "Who would you rather have catering your party, neanderthals or ninjas?" and "Which would be worse, ten hours in Baghdad or Baltimore?"-and readers must decide which option would be worse. After each scenario is staged, the author offers up useful history, information, and facts about the people or things involved. There is a chart in the back to log your decisions, as well as other lose-lose options to consider and a place to create one's own bad vs. worse scenarios. The highly descriptive table of contents allows for easy navigation. An amusing read, this latest entry in the series would be fun to use as a conversation starter among close friends, although some scenarios are undeniably unfair or biased. Recommended for libraries with an interest in pop culture and what-if books.
